How to Unroot Any Android Device

Rooting any Android device is becoming very easy nowadays and the same should be said for unrooting Android devices too.

For one reason or the other, unrooting of Android may be needed either to correct an issue or to avoid voiding the warranty when presenting the device to manufacturers for swapping or repairs

Which ever reason it is, the tutorial below should help unroot your Android device whether Samsung, HTC, Tecno etc.

1.   Rooted android device 
2. Device with Clock World Mod installed not supported (requires more steps than the ones stated)

1. Go to Play Store and download ES File Explorer. Don't move to SD card.

2. Launch app, click on the slash button

3. Tap the phone menu button to reveal new options 

4. tap Root Explore setting it to ON

5. Superuser will ask you to grant super privilege or root privileges to the app. Allow it

6. Now go to the System folder as shown in the image below, then bin folder, then find su file. Long press SU to select and then delete.

7. Now go into xbin folder which is also located in the System folder

8. Delete the su file there

9. Now go to app folder, also located in the System folder and delete the Superuser.apk file shown in the image

10. Finally reboot your device. That's all, very easy

Your Android device would immediately be unrooted after doing this.

    1. If you followed the steps you should be able to delete the files.I hope File Explorer has root priviledges. Alternatively, connect your phone to PC and go to the location I described to delete the files.

  4. I got to step 6 and there is no su file. Went to step 7 and there is. Was afraid to delete until I checked it's ok to do step 7 even though didn't do step 6.


  5. Also you say reboot. Do you mean turn on and off device?
